London 2012 Athletics: 215 days and counting...

Posted on


London 2012 gets ever closerSo, it's finally arrived... 2012 is almost here. When it was announced that London would host the 2012 Summer Olympic Games back in 2005 it seemed an absolute lifetime away. In fact, the next six and a half years has whizzed by and we are only 215 days from the start of the athletics action. Just over seven months until the greatest show on earth gets underway.

Thinking back, I can remember that magical moment so clearly - the joy I felt was quite overpowering and the sense of expectation was incredible. Only when the Opening Ceremony takes place will I start to genuinely believe that it's actually happening; there is still a certain about of disbelief, which is strange for someone who has visited the Olympic site on countless occasions over the past couple of years!

Obviously, 2012 is not just about the Olympics - we have a European Championships before then, a World Indoors and also a World Junior Champs however to most people, just the mention of 2012 is synonymous with the Games and that is that.

London 2012 will truly be a phenomenal specatacle which I'm sure will be a huge success, not least for the GB & NI team, who should enjoy their best athletics medal haul for many years, possible ever. It will come around in a flash and we are all ready to host the world's best athletes in the great city of London. Bring it on!
